“Well, although I say it myself, I am looking pretty damn good. Been out jogging with the girlfriend (Heinz 57 but boy she’s fast!) lost a few pounds and feeling better for it. Her Ladyship is needing the fresh air with the Prodigal Son being at the front line, so I am the main man right now. Himself and the no 2 Prodigal not getting a look-in, in fact I would say Himself is even in the doghouse. Mid life crisis is going a bit too far, new toys and all that and you see I’m cheap to keep and so grateful. Heard her telling someone I’m the ideal man! Pedigree even, not many of those in Cornwall!
Getting in training for the Royal Cornwall Show at Wadebridge – June 7th , 8th and 9th. It’s a great day out for all the family and I have been summonsed! Will be on duty, (or is it on guard?) all week at stand number 335 map reference C1. My well fed friend from the golf reception will be there too and we shall be extolling the virtues of the famous Lanhydrock Quality Sunday Carvery, having sampled most of the succulent cuts through generous Chefs at the kitchen back door over the years. (They keep in with me as I am so near the top)
We shall also be raising awareness of the beautiful Lanhydrock Golf Course, in perfect condition for the Summer ahead, perfectly manicured and raring to go! We have some amazing deals at all times of the day. I am of course the only dog allowed on the course, having been around at Lanhydrock since the delicate age of 8 weeks old. There’s not a tree that I haven’t watered personally over the years and it would be fair to say that with the local golfers I am a bit of a celebrity. Possibly my clever christening has helped with golfing connections – one of her few clever blonde decisions. Best not to quote me for fear of rationing the treats. She has to be mean to keep me so lean!
Come along and meet us at the Show. Lucky visitors might even go away with a treat, and not a canine one!”
